S’mores Brownie Bars Recipe

Ingredients:

CRUST:
  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 10 whole crackers)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup salted butter, melted
BROWNIES:
  • 1 (18 oz.) box brownie mix
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 (16 oz.) bag of marshmallows

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350F degrees. Line a 9×9 baking pan with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

MAKE THE CRUST:

  1. In a medium sized bowl, mix together the graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter until crust forms.
  2. Press graham cracker crust into bottom of prepared pan. Bake for 15 minute or until crust is lightly brown.

MAKE THE BROWNIES:

  1. Prepare brownie mix as directed on the back of the box. Stir in milk chocolate chips.
  2. Pour brownie mix on top of crust. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  3. Switch your oven to broil. Evenly top brownies with marshmallows (see Step 5 photo above).
  4. Place the pan into the oven, broil until the marshmallows just begin to brown.
  5. IMPORTANT: I highly recommend standing near the oven while you do this to ensure that the marshmallows do not burn, checking every 20 seconds or so.
  6. Remove from the oven and let the brownies cool completely. To remove, gently lift the brownies out of the pan by using the extra foil on the sides. Pull the foil away and cut into squares.

  2. 2. Combine butter and chocolate in a heatproof bowl and set over a pan of barely simmering water. Let stand, stirring occasionally, until almost melted. Remove bowl from pan, whisk until smooth and cool until warm.
  3. 3. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl. Stir sugar into warm chocolate mixture. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Mix in vanilla; fold in flour mixture. Spread batter in pan. Bake until just set in center, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool completely in pan on wire rack.
  4. 4. Freeze pan for 30 minutes. Lift brownies out of pan using the overhanging foil; place on a cutting board. Use a 2 1/4-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter to make 9 brownies.
  5. 5. Place Candy Melts in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Remove pan from heat, keeping bowl over water; stir until completely melted. Keep bowl over water as you work. Dip end of a lollipop stick into candy coating and insert into pointed end of a brownie. Place on a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining sticks and brownies. Place baking sheet in freezer for 10 minutes.
  6. 6. Carefully dip each brownie entirely or halfway into candy coating. Rotate stick, tapping it gently, allowing excess to drip off, or drizzle with coating. Apply decorations, if desired. Stand pops in Styrofoam.
